[Oklahoma City, OK] – The Busker Street Fair is returning for a second year to Myriad Botanical Gardens on Friday, September 8, 5 to 8 p.m. “Busking” is the art of performing in a public space in exchange for gratuities. This unique evening event promises to be a fun-filled and family-friendly experience for all.

With over 40 vendors, attendees will have the opportunity to shop from a variety of local artisans and immerse themselves in captivating entertainment.

The atmosphere will come alive with the vibrant sights and sounds of talented street performers and musicians. See stilt walkers towering above you and be amazed by the tricks of talented magicians. Immerse yourself in the creative world as you have a custom poem written on an old school typewriter or get your very own classic caricature drawn.
